Women's health in India: Emergent Issues & Challenges to Public Health
Provision of health care services implicitly factor in the understanding of social and economic disadvantage and vulnerability. However, the
understanding of gender as an important contributor for poor/negative health outcomes has still not been addressed in public health
programmes. Focus on women still continues to be women-specific and maternal health oriented.
This talk attempts to throw light on understanding the gender issues in society that throw fresh challenges to health care services delivery.
